The Activities Collection for Engaging Talks and Workshops

taught by Ida Shessel

Course description

Looking for ways to ramp up audience engagement 
during your workshops, talks, and retreat sessions?

Looking to create raving fans who love your sessions,
come back for more of your products and 
services, and refer you to others?

Then The Activities Collection is right for you. 

This collection contains 8 of the best – and easiest – activities that I've used many 
times and taught to hundreds of presenters...activities that you can use to engage and 
energize your audience while they’re learning your content.

What These Activities Will Do For You...

 Reduce Your Stage Fright

Public speaking can be a nerve-racking experience, but using activities takes
some of the pressure off, giving you a chance to take a breath, calm the
butterflies in your stomach, and prepare yourself for what’s coming next.

 Reinforce Your Content & Your Brand

Do you have key words, tag lines, and a process you want to be known for?
If you want to make a positive long-term impact on your audience, you need
 to incorporate activities that will help your audience remember and use your stuff.

 Address the Diverse Ways That People Learn

 Add energy and variety to your session. Not everyone enjoys nor
 learns best from lecture-style talks

 Help You Find Out What Your Attendees Already Know

Take away the guesswork. Use activities to help you assess your participants’
current knowledge and experience level with your topic – and then tailor
your session to meet their needs and give better value.

 Be Different

Create raving fans! Dare to stand out from the crowd of speakers and
 seminar leaders who just dump a load of information on
their audiences and assume they’re giving tons of value.

Use These Activities As…

Information processing exercises
Reinforcement exercises

They're Easily Customizable 

All the Activities in this collection can easily be customized
to your topic. In some cases, you can use the activity as is – no editing
required. For other activities, all you have to do is replace the examples
with your own content. It’s that easy!

Creator of the Engaging Talks and Workshops Programs

Hi, I'm Ida Shessel, and I believe that everyone, yes YOU TOO, can stand up and lead engaging interactive workshops, talks, and retreat sessions.

You have expertise and knowledge that others want, need, and are willing to pay for. You can create raving fans who love your sessions, refer you to others, and come running back for more of what you have to offer. How exciting is that!!

Everything you’ll learn here is based on AUDIENCE PSYCHOLOGY and ADULT LEARNING PRINCIPLES...… important elements you won’t find in other programs...elements that will help you    

 …hook, draw, engage, guide, and magnetize your audiences.

From now on…this knowledge… this understanding… of what your audience members need, want, and like, along with why they do what they do is what you’ll use to confidently connect with your audience members and help them solve the problems that brought them to you.

You’ll gain confidence and skills that you can use today, tomorrow, next week, and yes, even years from now!

Why I'm the Perfect Teacher for This...

Here’s the short version….

I love that I’ve been able to help thousands of experts transform their abilities to create and lead workshops, talks, and retreat sessions. 

I have a Master’s degree in Adult Education and was a professor at Seneca College for 10 years. I worked as a consultant with an award-winning seminar company for 16 years, designing and delivering train-the-trainer workshops at conferences and meetings across North America and beyond.  I’ve had my own consulting firm for many years as well.
